Alt Rock from Victoria BC

since 2021
Shale presents a vintage flair and sultry style that carves a new groove in the vinyl of alt rock. Silky smooth guitar and keyboard riffs are reminiscent of The Doors, Cage the Elephant, and Wolf Alice. Lyrical melodies from the voice of a post grunge angel are backed by a thunderously precise rhythm section. Rising from obscurity, their latest single, Shake, hit 10,000 listens within a month, with streams in over 20 countries.

Supported on stage by a tophat wearing tiger, Shale’s live shows are a maelstrom of energy the likes of which are seldom seen outside of metal. Drawing on the stage presence of David Bowie and Freddy Mercury, Shale rarely shies away from the dramatic. You have been warned.

This July, Shale was crowned "Band of the Month" by The Zone radio, and celebrated by rocking the stage at Laketown Shakedown with Shaggy, Aqua, and Portugal the Man. In the past year, Shale has opened for illScarlett, Juno award winning Monowhales, and transcontinental touring band Red Rum Club; as well as performing at a TEDx event. Shale's debut EP, Wither, made a global impression, streaming to fans in over 60 countries.
